  1. Luckily we live on the Isle Of Wight & were supposed to be on a Croatia Clipper cruise but we are now going to the New Forest for a week in a couple weeks time - it is so busy on the island with many people having a staycation which is great for local business & the economy.
  2. We have a Safari in January & our next Clipper cruise in June - we were saying last night I do not think we will be going on either with the way it is now & there is no way I want to wear a mask while cruising so will sit this out I think.
  3. For anyone interested the new Clipper ship 'Golden Dawn' will be on sale next month. Looks some great cruises including one around the UK so will be interested to see how they price it. "After spending next Spring cruising from the UK, Golden Horizon will then follow the trade winds east along the Maritime Silk Route, from the Mediterranean to Asia and the Indian Ocean with a fantastic collection of sailing cruises"
  4. Thanks for that - looks very interesting & she will even be docked outside my house on the IOW during Cowes week 🙂
  5. We were on the cruise before this one - I managed to cancel it & move the deposit to another cruise next year although I was a little apprehensive they would do it. We booked the flights with air-miles so easy to cancel & get the miles credited back to my account. Amazed if your cruise will still go although Venice seems to be open for business,
  6. Thanks John - hope you are safe & well
  7. We have 2 Clipper cruises booked for next year - Greece in June & moved our Croatia cruise this August to a Caribbean cruise next December. Throw in a trip to the keys in December hopefully & a safari in Kenya January we are looking forward to travelling again.
  8. Hi John (I think that is you 🙂 ) - I hope you are well & safe in Tennessee. We had the pleasure of sailing with you on the Flyer in February. We were so lucky to be able to cruise before COVID took it's toll. We have cancelled our remaining cruises this year but still hope to get to the Key's in December & see Jimmy Buffett in Tampa. We moved our Clipper Croatia cruise in August to another Caribbean cruise on the Royal Clipper next December 2021 so 2 booked next year hopefully 🤞🤞 Take care & it was great sailing with you & having a beer or 2 at those wonderful beach bar's we found. Paul & Mel ( Isle Of Wight UK)
  9. They have kindly now changed our cruise to next year as well - already have one booked so we will have to force ourselves to take another one 🙂
  10. Many thanks - I will contact my travel agent again as I am not sure they even tried last time. Stay safe.
  11. Many thanks - we are in the UK so our booking rules are a bit different normally meaning the deposit is non refundable. I will wait another month & see but I will be amazed if anyone is cruising before September. You stay safe as well.
  12. We are due to sail the end of August as well but my travel agent said we can not move it to next year - did Star Clipper do this for you easily? We have another cruise booked next year so are happy to just add this deposit to that one.
  13. We have another one booked in August & I am not even confident that will go ahead. Our balance is due in June - tbh I would not mind if they just let me put that deposit against the one we have booked next year. They sure do not make it easy to see the cancelled cruises.
  14. They have a cruise 17th April from Malta - no way will that happen & amazed if they do any med cruises before July at the earliest. We did a Caribbean cruise 4 weeks ago on the flyer so were very lucky.
  15. We were on the cruise before & did the train in St Kitts which we really enjoyed. South Friars beach was awful as 2 large NCL monstrosities were docked so 1,000's of people - we went over on the tender & came straight back again.
